Eyelid surgery for men is a minor procedure with a big impact. Heavy eyelids can tell the world that you are tired, not up for the challenge, disinterested or suspicious, even when that is far from the truth. The sagging can be inherited or simply the natural aging process showing itself in your features. Your skin loses elasticity over time and the delicate skin of the eye is susceptible to the effects of the resulting laxity.
Revive your look and keep your edge with eyelid surgery, also called blepharoplasty. Eyelids heal very quickly and incisions are quite inconspicuous.
Surgery on the upper eyelids involves and incision made in the crease above each eye. Excess fatty tissue and skin are removed and then the incisions are closed with fine sutures that dissolve on their own. Lower eyelid surgery is done to remove fatty tissue that creates under eye bags, causing the patient to look tired or even sad. Incisions may be made inside the lower eyelid or hidden along natural smile crease along the lower lash line allowing the excess tissue to be removed.
Most patients return to normal activities in about a week.
